Funding Awarded to Online Seafood Workforce Hub

The Eyre Peninsula seafood workforce may be easier linked to employment, training and career pathways, after funding was committed to set up a new online labour retention and training hub.


$385,000 has been awarded to Seafood Industry Australia through the first round of the Federal Government's AgUP grants, to develop the platform SeaWork.

In a statement, Assistant Minister for Forestry and Fisheries, Jonno Duniam, said as exports recovered and new markets opened, the grant would equip the industry for future success.

He said it has never been a better or more important time for the industry to focus on how it can attract and retain the workers it will need.
